  • The Case for Lilith
    by Biggs, Mark

    The legend of Lilith is undoubtedly the most fantastic of all ancient rabbinic
    myths. According to lore, God created her from dust alongside Adam. However,
    Lilith was a failed mate. She was not animated by the breath of God like Adam.
    Rather she was preemptively animated by a Satanic mist which erupted from the
    ground. Lilith rebelled against Adam and became the infamous Serpent who
    deceived Eve and caused Adam to fall. Therefore, God established eternal enmity
    between the Serpent Lilith and Eve and between their seed. Lilith's seed would
    bruise the heel of Eve's promised seed, Messiah, but Eve's seed would revive to
    crush Lilith's head. This book reveals 23 Biblical evidences that prompted
    ancient rabbis to conclude the various elements of Lilith's legend. It also
    explains how her legend is completely consistent with traditional Judaic /
    Christian teachings on the Bible's redemptive message. Her legend solves many
    ancient Biblical mysteries, such as why the Serpent bears seed like Eve.

  • The Four Faces
    by Benatar, Isaac

    In February 2006, four faces appear to Victor Hannah carved out of the storm
    clouds above his home in the tiny historic town of Annapolis, Maryland. The
    experience entangles him in a murder mystery involving the occult of the modern
    Western world and the traditional witch doctors of Africa. The murders involve
    several Western billionaires who all inexplicably die after returning home from
    overseas business trips. Victor?s curiosity leads him to seek advice from a
    renowned psychic in Washington DC, who in turn introduces him to Jana Gordon,
    the beautiful daughter of one of the deceased men. Jana is determined to bring
    those responsible for the murders of her father and the other financiers to
    justice. The search for the cause of the mysterious deaths takes Victor, Jana,
    and her two undercover private detectives to the African country of Zimbabwe.
    There they are confronted with the dangers of the powerful magic of African

    Victor and Jana find evidence that links the murders to the legend of Chief
    Lobengula?s hidden treasure of diamonds. But will they be able to capture those
    responsible and put an end to the evil scheme?

  • Weapons of Choice : World War 2. 1
    by Birmingham, John

    The impossible has spawned the unthinkable. In 2021, a quantum military
    experiment goes horrifically wrong. A multinational taskforce of ultra-modern

    head with World War Two technology. In the chaos that ensues, thousands are

    ceramic bullets, and F22 Raptor stealth jetfighters. Allied and Axis forces are
    then caught in a desperate struggle to gain the upper hand - each hoping to tip
    the balance with a fist full of twenty first century firepower. What happens
    next is anybody's guess 'e" and everybody's nightmare'e¦

  • Water Inc.
    by Burstyn, Varda

    "Years of drought have given the United States a terrible thirst and turned
    water into blue gold. A powerful agrichemical magnate and corporate visionary,
    William Greele, puts a consortium together to pipe water down from northern
    Quebec. Politicians and federal security agencies ride shotgun for him at home,
    while in Quebec his path is cleared - and covered - by a brilliant,
    existentially torn deputy minister. Stealth and deception are crucial to the
    project's success." "But Malcolm Macpherson, a Seattle aerospace executive and
    conservationist, finds out about the pipeline. Appalled, he appeals to
    rebel-girl Claire Davidowicz, director of eco-Justice USA, to stop it. Soon
    they've enlisted a Quebec law professor, a feisty British journalist, three
    rogue policemen, a reluctant eco-terrorist, and a maverick Vermont governor.
    It's a heart-pounding, deadly race as they desperately try to figure out how to
    save the continent - and their own lives - before it's too late." "Ranging
    across the US, into the cities and beautiful wilderness of Quebec, and reaching
    as far as Mexico, Lisbon, and Brussels, Water Inc. is a tale of greed, heroism,
    clashing loyalties, love, and mortal risk."--BOOK JACKET.
